INTRODUCTION Prosauropod dinosaurs in the broad sense, that is any basal sauropodomorph that is not a member of the derived, columnar-limbed sauropod clade (i.e. Vulcanodon + Eusauropoda), have long been known from the Lower Elliot Formation (Upper Triassic, Karoo Supergroup) of South Africa. Indeed, the unit contains a moderate diversity of such dinosaurs, with three taxa, Euskelosaurus browni, Melanorosaurus readi and Blikanasaurus cromptoni, commonly being accepted as valid (e.g. Galton 1990… CONTINUE READING
